Customer Question
I have an 06 DTS...
I have an 06 DTS and recently I have been having problems getting it to go from park into gear. I start the car push down the pedal and the shift moves to the side but will not pull down into gear. It does not happen all the time but does seem to be getting worse.

Do you have a multimeter to do some testing?

No

Well its either going to be a bad brake switch or a bad shift lock actuator. Without any way of testing that is as far as I can get you.
